Douglas Road closure

January 3, 2008

We have received the following from RBK Highways this morning:-


ROAD TRAFFIC REGULATION ACT. 1984 – SECTIONS 14(2)(b) & 15(7) (b) AS




The Council of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, being the traffic authority for Douglas Road, Surbiton, in the said borough, in exercise of the powers conferred by section 14(2)(b) and 15(7)(b) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 (as amended) HEREBY GIVES NOTICE THAT, because of the likelihood of danger to the public during emergency works to repair a gas leak by Southern Gas Networks, the following provisions shall have effect.

  1. Save as provided in paragraph 2 below, no person shall cause any vehicle to enter or proceed in Douglas Road between its junction with Tankerton Road and Thornhill Road during the period commencing 1100 hours on 3rd January 2008 for maximum of 21 days or until completion of the works, whichever is the earlier. It is anticipated that the work will be completed in seven days

2 The prohibitions specified in paragraph 1 above:-

(a) shall apply only at such time and to such extent as shall be indicated by traffic signs: and

(b) shall not apply to anything done with the permission of or at the direction of a constable in uniform or to any vehicles being used in connection with the works

3. While the prohibition specified in paragraph 1 above applies, access to premises on or adjacent to the effected road shall be maintained insofar as this is reasonable without interference with execution of the said works.

4 An alternative route exists via Thornhill Road, Red Lion Road and Tankerton Road
